Prison As A Last Resort - To detain a person you are depriving them of their personal liberty (Findlay et al, 2000). The detention or imprisonment of offenders has been a consequence used for a variety of offences in society for hundreds of years.

The person should have a punished that is equally cruel as the crime that has been committed....   [tags: Death Penalty Essays]

Juvenile Offenders Should be Tried as Adults - During the 1970s and 1980s the system of juvenile justice had been changed drastically across the United States: a substantial share of the crimes committed by juvenile moved to the jurisdiction of the criminal courts.

Juvenile Detention Makes Teens Worse - There are numerous critics of the juvenile justice system, and while most of their denunciations remain the same as those of the justice system at large, an ample portion of their criticisms revolve around the claim that incarcerating young people not only doesn’t work in deterring or rehabilitating them, but makes them worse and leads to adult misconduct. A report noted that youth sent to juvenile prison were 37 times more likely to be arrested as adults (Szalavitz, 2009). Another major problem some cite with the juvenile justice system is that most delinquent offends have some form of mental illness, and that while studies have shown that mental health treatment would be a better alternati...   [tags: juvenile justice system]

Juvenile Justice - The juvenile courts were put into place on the principle that courts should give children special treatment due to their innocence and dependency (Caldwell, 1961).
